How long are sessions?

Individual sessions are 45 minutes.

They may occur weekly or twice a week, based on a mutual commitment to this frequency.

What is your rate? Do you accept insurance? Do you have a sliding scale?


I am an out-of-network provider for most insurance plans. Please check with your insurance company to find out if you have out-of-network coverage. This coverage often has a deductible, and then covers a percentage of the visit after the deductible is met. I can help you navigate your out-of-network benefits to find out if you may be reimbursed. I will also provide you with a “superbill” that can be used for insurance reimbursement.

In an effort to make treatment available to more people, a limited number of sliding scale appointments are available for those with financial need. Fees are discussed and agreed upon during our initial consultation.

What are your specialties?

I have helped people work on issues related to depression, anxiety, family conflict, self-esteem, trauma, relationship issues, social injustice, career confusion, and identity uncertainty.

Do you prescribe medication?

I do not provide medication treatment and cannot prescribe medication to my clients. However, I work closely with several psychiatrists and can help coordinate your pharmacological treatment.

Do you do online or in-person sessions?

Both! I am currently doing online sessions as well as in-person sessions in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

What is your approach?

My approach is eclectic—based on psychodynamic practices, Jungian analysis, trauma-informed work, Buddhist philosophy, and mindfulness. I work in an active and collaborative manner. Please see the About Alison page for more information.

What is the process to begin?

Call or email me to set up a phone consultation. We will speak for a little while, so that I can get to know you and understand the general reasons why you’re seeking therapy. If it’s a good fit, we will set up a time for our first session.
